Western Australia Reunion

The Western Australian old grammarians recently gathered at a Perth city hotel to meet Principal Debbie Dunwoody and other WA based CGGS alumnae.

The guests shared many stories of their time at Camberwell Girls Grammar School, from the 1950’s through to 1990’s, and were very interested to hear of the wonderful opportunities the current students are offered. They were also very excited to hear about the centenary celebrations we have planned next year.
